WWV & WWVH to drop NOAA marine storm warning announcements October 31, 2018

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Dave Zantow (N9EWO), who notes that WWV and WWVH are announcing the end of marine storm warning announcements on October 31, 2018.

This morning, I made the following recording of the announcement via WWV 5 MHz at 4 minutes past the hour:

Last year this time NOAA announced the end of the high seas warnings scheduled for October 31, 2017.

      Sorry to continue my pattern of being a buzzkill, but what do they currently use for such warnings? And what is their backup for that? I believe they have numerous systems for receiving weather warnings from shore and other ships, including other radio systems. Do we know how many people actually used the WWV and WWVH warnings for this purpose? I assume NOAA spent some time on that before they shut them down.
